Australian A-League soccer star Josh Cavallo came out as gay in October 2021 and became the first top professional soccer player to do so publicly. This month, the footballer is on the cover of Men’s Health Australia and open up about coming to terms with her sexuality and her first experience with a guy.
“I was about 16 when I realized I might be gay. It was confusing. I was like, do I like girls? There was something that just didn’t click for me with them. I would love to hang out, but nothing would really come of it. I wouldn’t be sexually attracted to them,” he told the publication.
“I had never dated guys back then. I spent a long time trying to figure out, is this what I want? Obviously, my first experience with a guy was a bit later. It felt like it was something I had missed all my life. It was just okay. That’s when I knew I wasn’t going to be straight. I think that I’m going to be gay,” he shared.
Afro-futuristic queer sci-fi musical Neptune Frost by multidisciplinary multidisciplinary artist Saul Williams is now available for rental and purchase on premium video on demand.
Logline: “The film takes place on the heights of Burundi, where a group of escaped coltan miners form an anti-colonialist collective of hackers. From their camp in an otherworldly e-waste dump, they attempt to take control of the authoritarian regime that exploits the region’s natural resources – and its people. When an intersex fugitive and an escaped coltan miner reunite through cosmic forces, their connection triggers trouble in the divine circuitry. Located between states of being – past and present, dream and waking life, colonized and free, masculine and feminine, memory and prescience – Neptune Frost is an invigorating and stimulating direct download to the cerebral cortex and a call to reclaim technology from progressive political ends.”
